On this episode of Transforming Together, MC Carey (they/them) is joined by the phenomenal Patrilie Hernandez (she/they) to discuss generational trauma, eating disorders, and the road to healing through ancestral food ways. Patrilie Hernandez, MS (she/they) has over 14 years of experience working in the health and nutrition sector as an educator, advocate, project manager, and policy analyst. She approaches Health at Every Size from an Intersectional lens and uses a Body Liberation framework as the foundation of her work. She combines her academic background in anthropology and nutrition/health, with her lived experience as a fat, neuroatypical, queer multiracial femme of the Puerto Rican diaspora to disrupt the status quo of the local health and nutrition community and advocates for a weight-inclusive paradigm in health and educational settings.
